Simply put, where do you think the next bronycon should be held? Personally, I think Fillydelphia would be great place for it.  What do you think?

Pretty sure they displayed lots of interest in staying in Baltimore for a few years. The convention center is absolutely massive, and can more than easily deal with BronyCon's expected growth for a long while. Ottacon or whatever it's called, an anime convention, has 30,000 people who joined/are joining. BronyCon this year was a very awesome 8,400+, but that's still nowhere near an amount that would outgrow the Baltimore Convention Center. In addition, it's attached to the Hilton Hotel, and is surrounded by four additional hotels, and numerous museums and the Oriels baseball park. It's as if the place was made for the brony fandom's large conventions :P

 

I won't be surprised if it stays there for a few more years.

They usually settle anywhere close towards the middle of the United States.

 

Baltimore seems like the next choice in my opinion, but eventually they choose newer areas to expand.

There is a high probability BronyCon 2014 will be held in Baltimore again. CD told me at the MLP Forums' dinner that the organizers want to stick with one place after moving around for some many years. Can't say I blame them -- too bad Baltimore isn't so nice once you leave the convention area.

 

Otacon is indeed held around the same time as BronyCon -- with far larger attendance numbers, I might add. There isn't much sense in abandoning large convention space, an easily accessible city (Baltimore is a junction for major railroads on the east coast), and accommodations ranging from hotels to restaurants.

Being the completely biased person that I am I would say Chicago. More of a central location, a lot more user friendly to midwestern and west coast bronies. I live in Iowa :P

Truth be told, if BronyCon moved again, it would likely settle no further than Ohio. A lot of conventions are held in that state, due to its accessibility. Personally speaking, however, I quite prefer BronyCon's current location -- but I'm a biased New Yorker who likes to save money on trains. :P

OREGON. CAUSE CONVENIENT. FOR MOSTLY ME.

 

Like the others have said, there's a decent chance it'll be in Baltimore for the foreseeable future. Though, if it doesn't, it'll be on the East Coast, therefore it won't make a huge difference to me :P. I'll be doing my best to make it there regardless.

I would be totally fine with it being in Baltimore, because I live within Baltimore County and I'm all for my own convenience at the cost of everybody else's traveling expenses it really is a lovely venue.

I'm actually fine with it being in Baltimore not because I live around here because I'd totally be willing to travel but it's a nice convention center.

I honestly thought philly cuz i didnt think it would be in the same place. I live about 7 hours away from baltimore. If It's there again, I would definitely like it. not too fond of traveling far to somewhere like LA. I live in niagara falls. Also , what would be good to bring to bronycon?

I live in Rhode Island so Baltimore is definitely one of the better options for me personally. I don't know if I'll actually be able to go to Bronycon next year. I'll only be 15 so... We'll see.

Honestly, I want one to be held in Florida just because of it being closer to where I live however, beings most if you are saying Baltimore had the better convention center, I guess I wouldn't mind it being held there again.
Maybe next year I'll be able to attend it :3

It wouldn't matter for me no matter where they place the next Bronycon. It could be right next door and I wouldn't have the money for tickets. To be honest they just need to put it an easily accessible city with decently priced hotels. So Baltimore always seems like a good candidate.

 

But like the Superbowl, they need to change up the location. Perhaps the next one could be in Miami, Florida?

METAL GEAR?! IT CAN'T BE!

 

Yeah, I forgot about the difference in spelling. That being set aside, the Baltimore Convention Center is indeed a really nice place. I also found the hotel and convention staff to be very courteous.

I personally think it should be somewhere in California. The East had BronyCon for the last couple BronyCons, so I think the west should get a chance! :P In the middle of The Untied States would be good too.

If I had my way, I'd have the con be in Milwaukee somewhere. If we're talking actual convention centers though, Rosemont, over in Chicago's north-side would be a good place. They host Anime Central every late April/May over at the Donald Jay Stevens convention center (I think that's what it's called) as well as working with the nearby Hyatt and Double Tree Hotels. It could definitely hold Bronycon, as Anime Central has been hosting between 18,000 & 21,000 attendees.

 

But I already talked to the con staff and they said that Baltimore is the foreseeable future.

 

but regardless of where it is...

 

I will be there!

Sioux falls in South Dakota is a great place to be. There are plenty of hotels and it is just a great place, I think, for Bronycon to be. It may not be super close to anything but it is a pretty big city with plenty of room for all us Bronies to stay.

It'll probably stay in Baltimore for reasons already stated, but I hope it moves closer to me, so I can go. :P
II'm sure somewhere south, like Dallas could host it.
